Biomass Fuel Testing

Biomass fuel quality testing.

Intertek biomass fuel testing laboratories test biomass fuels for quality. Crucial biomass fuel tests include calorific value, ash content, moisture content, sulphur content, pH, chloride content and other tests.

Biomass fuels tested for quality include wood products, crops, other plants, manure, some types of rubbish and other organic materials which can burn. Biomass fuels are derived from renewable sources, such as wood chips, waste materials, and plants.

Biomass fuels tested:

Biomass fuel test methods include the ASTM E870 standard, including proximate analysis, ultimate analysis, and the gross caloric value of wood fuels.

Available on a global basis, additional ASTM and ISO tests for biomass fuels are also available. These include:

  • Diameter, EN-16127 
  • Length, EN-16127 
  • Unit volume mass, EN-15103, ASTM E871 
  • Net calorific value, EN-14918, ASTM E711, D5865 
  • Gross calorific value, dry basis, EN-14918, ASTM E711, D5865 
  • Ash, EN14775, ASTM D1102 
  • Chlorine, EN-15289, ASTM D4208 
  • Sulfur, EN-15289, ASTM D4239 
  • Ash fusion temperature, EN-15370, ASTM D1857 
  • Carbon, EN-15104, ASTM D5373 
  • Hydrogen, EN15104, ASTM D5373 
  • Nitrogen, EN15104, ASTM D5373 
  • Trace metals analysis, EN-15297, for Hg, Cd, Pb, As, Cr, Cu, Ni, Zn
